News (September 14, 2008): is now

To those loyal users who've looked for this site in the past few months and wondered why they couldn't find it, I have an admission: I screwed up. I'm an amateur webmaster with a totally unrelated day job and many other things to worry about, so when the domain registration for expired due to a misunderstanding, I didn't immediately notice, and after noticing, I thought it would be fine if I got around to fixing it in a week or two. Unfortunately, due to many other concerns taking precedence, a week or two became several months and in that time someone else bought the domain name, hoping to resell it.

(Forgive me if I go off on a rant for a moment, but buying domain names you don't need just because you think other people might and you could therefore make money off them... is a stupid business model. To the new owners of the domain you can have it if you like, I refuse to play the game. I have a new domain name now, and I don't need yours. Go do something useful and productive for a change.)

As of today, the site is being relaunched at, and to all long time readers and fans of this website: I apologize for the snafu. I've learned a lesson, and you can rest assured that will not be mysteriously disappearing anytime soon. I also still have a collection of suggested edits and additions that many of you have sent in, and intend to follow through with a long awaited site update in the near future. Thanks to all who have sent comments and suggestions in the mean time, especially those who lamented the disappearance of the site -- I'm glad to know that it was missed.
